MEET DR. GAETANO GIALANELLA
Dr. Gialanella is extremely dedicated to the overall health and well being of his patients. He believes each patient’s individual needs should be carefully assessed and adequate time given to discuss their dental conditions and options. He is always available to his patients and prides himself on offering them the highest level of dentistry. It is his mission to create a strong dentist-patient relationship and then execute modern, comprehensive dentistry.
Dr. Gialanella completed his undergraduate degree in Biology at Siena College. He attended NYU College of Dentistry where he received his D.D.S. degree. He then went on to complete a General Practice Residency at Nassau University Medical Center in East Meadow, New York. Upon completing the residency program he was chosen to serve as chief resident for an additional year. During these two years, Dr. Gialanella gained valuable experience in the areas of full mouth rehabilitation, implant restoration, endodontics, oral surgery, periodontal surgery, TMJ therapy, orthodontics, and pediatric dentistry.
Following the post-graduate training program, Dr. Gialanella returned to the Albany area and began practicing at his current location. Since entering private practice, he has completed over 1200 hours of continuing education. This coursework includes certification as an Invisalign provider in 2004. In 2004, he also completed a continuum at the Pankey Institute, an advanced continuing dental education center.
In July of 2010, Dr. Gialanella completed a four year continuing education course of study through the Orognathic Bioesthetic Institute. The Orognathic Bioesthetic Institute(OBI) is a not-for-profit institute that provides courses for general dentists and dental specialists based on the research and philosophies of Dr. Robert Lee. After attending numerous lectures and presenting several cases completed in our office Dr. Gialanella presented his final case, a full mouth rehabilitation that he performed for a patient of his practice. This lecture marked the end of the course of study through OBI and placed Dr. Gialanella in an elite group of less than four hundred dentists worldwide that have completed this training.
Dr. Gialanella is also a member of Capital District Continuum for Advanced Dental Education, a local study group affiliated with the Seattle Study Group. He has been a member of this group for the past eight years. This unique study group allows general dentists and specialists to meet and review their current cases.
